Vector Fabrics introduced the Pareon development tool. Pareon helps developers by optimizing applications for multicore systems in hours or days instead of weeks or months. With the new Vector Fabrics tool, speed-ups of 1.7x on dual-core and 3.5x on quad-core processors are typical. Pareon will be available on June 18th. Prices start at $1900 for a single-user license. Note: a fully functioning 15-day evaluation copy can be downloaded.
